installation and destruction day


Today was installation day. My mom and I got our phone lines and modems and yesterday our routers came in. Awesomeness all around. Except for the part that everybody was home… Meaning my dad and grandmother. When she teams up with him, the landscape begins to change. By landscape, I mean my yard. This isn’t a problem until they recruit me to help. What did I have to help them with today? Making our yard look like a post-hurricane site. My dad rented an extended saw thingy that cut down branches up high. Sadly, some of these branches needed help coming down, or needed guidence so they won’t, like, crash into the windows… like mine.

Long story short, every hour or so, I (and sometimes my mom) had been called to help bring down a rather large limb. I finally got wise and got gloves to pull on the rope (for what I was called for) so I could use what mere strength I have to help guide the huge nature pieces down.

I’ll post some pictures later. Meanwhile, tomorrow could almost possibly be my 2nd to last day at the office. Maybe not. I don’t know.

I just know right now, I’m hungry. I’m feeling a little moody because of a slight headache which might be due to my non-food intake. Why don’t I eat something already? I’m still saving money to get my car back, which hopefully is this Friday. I’d almost kill for a pizza. Maybe I’ll make a sandwich. I really need a pick-me-up.

I also really need to get cracking on that script. I ordered Our Uncle Sam but I don’t think I can wait for it or read all of it in time to finish writing and be ready by the end of the month and most importantly, by the time I meet Uncle Jazzy. I keep repeating myself about this, and I hate doing it so maybe once I get some work on it done, I’d feel better. But now? I need nurishing nutrients.

    I have had lots of dads, two of which put me to a hearty list of chores. At the time, I hated it, but in the long run, I was thankful when I had skills, discipline, and knowledge that other people did not.

    Lucky you, you get a few more months to choose a month to join the Write a Screenplay in One Month challenge. Come read the post for your special details.

    @kim–
    I haven’t been online at all. At first I thought my internet was shut off. Then later I was just being lazy and never turned AIM back on. As for right now, I’m on a mission, and by turning that on, it’d be a major distraction.

    Not to add on to me sounding lazy, but hat happened to my car is in past posts, and to understand my second to last day, click on the “WAH” tag.

    @jaden–
    I’m thankful and grateful now of the tasks my dad has me do. In a weird way, I kinda brag about it as if I’m the go-fer, or a messenger, or errand boy, or even a hitman. Well, not really leading to death, but whatever he tells me to do, I go forth and do it. I also like to compare our family to royalty. A lot of people seem to know my dad, and that get’s passed on to me by of association.

    I read your last blog, and I will comment since you commented on mine. Actually after reading it and seeing that you called me out, it was the pressure that made me drop what I was doing and finally put pen to paper… or press some keys on the keyboard. I’m determined to finish before September.
